Samba error on update

Hi, updated today from an earlier 19 to 19.4 and have an error installing samba-common bin.



Looks like a dodgy Samba config.

Setting up samba-common-bin (2:4.9.5+dfsg-5+deb10u3) ...
Checking smb.conf with testparm
WARNING: Ignoring invalid value 'SMB1' for parameter 'min protocol'
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
WARNING: Ignoring invalid value 'SMB1' for parameter 'min protocol'
Error loading services.

Have you tinkered with it?

No, I wouldn’t know how to. Iirc when I first set it up I had to change the protocol to SMB1 to get it to talk to my NAS, but that was from the GUI. That was years ago though.

The only thing that’s changed is that it’s set up temporarily at a friend’s house, but it was working until the update.

This is the samba.conf: using a chromebook so awkward but think I got all of it.

You could edit the samba.conf. SSH into the Vero and use nano to edit the file (you will need to sudo to edit it). Find the line:

min protocol = SMB1

and put a # at the start of the line:

# min protocol = SMB1

Save the file and try updating again.

Thanks, I’ve done that. It updated to 19.4 originally then displayed the error message. Weird that it only errored out now as this is one of the original Veros (with the FF/RW buttons on the remote instead of volume controls).

Apologies if this is a daft question, but as there was an error installing samba-common-bin does it now need to be installed again?

Shouldn’t need to.
